Our readers may or may not be aware that tonight, Thanksgiving Eve, is one of the busiest nights of the year for bar-hopping. Many individuals visiting with friends and family from wherever they have gone for the holiday tend to go out drinking in order to celebrate. Unfortunately, many of these bar and restaurant patrons will be pulled over for drunk driving tonight and throughout the busy holiday weekend.
As a result of the high rate of bar and restaurant visitation this evening and into the weekend, a number of law enforcement agencies nationwide are heightening their DUI patrols over the next several days. Accordingly, it is important that you take steps to ensure that you do not get pulled over for drunk driving this weekend. A drunk driving conviction can haunt you for years to come.
